Bloxworth Down

Round Barrow(s)


The O.S. map shows nine barrows on this site, although four are marked with crosses. On the ground I could only see three, and one of these was a very low feature. The largest and most complete was next to the track, just past a barn. It forms part of the field margin and has plough damage where it is in the field. The next most visible is also part of a hedge row to the south, on a ridge below a small wood.
This must once have been a substantial cemetetary but centuries of agriculture have reduced or removed most of the barrows.
